If you are already familiar with how to set up Linux to Linux remote X 
applications via either direct or SSH tunneling, the Cygwin X server 
under Windows works well, and is free.

You can also run a VNC server on the machine and launch a desktop from 
any machine that has a VNC viewer.  Another free solution, if your time 
is free.

There are also commercial solutions.  A number of them.  All of which 
require $ which I'm loathe to spend, being a dyed-in-the-wool 
cheapskate.  :-)
